The Central Philosophy of Tibet




A course taught by Prof Robert Thurman at Columbia University, focusing mainly on his book 'The Central Philosophy of Tibet - a study and translation of Jey Tsong Khapa's Essence of True Eloquence (tib: drang nges legs bshad snying po)', but also addressing material in Jey Tsong Khapa's Ocean of Reasoning (tib: rigs pa'i rgya mtso) as translated by Geshe Ngawang Samten and J Garfield, and in Aryadeva's Four Hundred Stanzas (skt: catuḥśataka, tib: bstan bcos bzhi brgya pa) as translated by Ruth Sonam.

This course explores the philosophical thought of Indo-Tibetan Buddhism, both in the intellectual setting of ancient India and Tibetan and in the context of the current global philosophy, focusing on the Dialecticist Centrist school of thought.
